H2H Keepers..Draft Pick Penalty

Postby didders515 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 10:31 am

I am in a 12 team H2H category league (R, HR, RBI, OPS, SB, TB & ERA, WHIP, QS, SV/HD, K, W, IP). We start (C, 1b, 2b, 3b, SS, 3 OF, UTIL) for batters.

All teams must keep 6 keepers, only one keeper can be in the first 3 rounds and it has to be 3 hitters and 3 pitchers. Who would you keep from this remaining list? WHIR!!

Joey Votto 1
Jered Weaver 3
Stephen Strasburg 4
Brett Lawrie 5
Jimmy Rollins 6
Joe Mauer 8
SS Choo 10
Billy Butler 12
Joe Nathan 13
Brandon Morrow 16
Marco Scutaro 17
Addison Reed 18
Justin Morneau 19
Ryan Vogelsong FA
Casey Jenssen FA
Hisashi Iwakuma FA
Wade Miley FA


I am leaning towards (Butler, Mauer, Choo) & (Strasburg, Weaver, Morrow), but what do you think? I don't know what position I will be drafting in yet and I don't know how many people will keep their first or second round pick...I feel that Butler will be servicable, so do I need 2 1b?
I like Weaver and Strasburg combo to shore up my pitching...but am looking for help!

Thanks

Breaking two of my rules in keeping Nathan and Mauer, but with what your restrictions are, I think you have to go for them based on value. I love Votto this year and think he's easily the best player to keep. While Weaver had a great season, I buy into Stras more and think you could have a reasonable shot at getting Weaver again in the draft. I'd definitely keep the proven Votto over extremely questionable Butler.

Its hard to let Butler go in the 12th round though. The problem is I would have a C and 2 1b if I kept Butler and Votto. I may be able to get Weaver again, but with Mike Trout being kept as a free agent and other possible 1st rounders being kept outside the first round, would I be stupid to let Votto go?

Let me get this straight. Only 1 keeper can be from rounds 1-3 so basically you have to choose between Weaver and Votto and then pick 5 other players totaling in 3 hitters and 3 batters?

If so I would go with

Votto, Lawrie, Rollins (Shore up the INF)
Strasburg, Morrow, Nathan/Reed

or

Lawrie, Rollins, Choo/Mauer
Weaver, Strasburg, Morrow

I agree with this. Starting with Votto and Stras gives you top tier guys right off the bat. I would have no problem keeping Butler and basically plugging your Util spot right away if you prefer him over Mauer by a good margin. If you like them equally or even Butler just a little more, I would go with Mauer because that fills C and you still have flexibility to use Util however you want later in the draft. Given how many guys are being kept, the cost of 8th round pick vs. the cost of 12th round pick is not going to be a big difference in the grand scheme of things, so I don't weight that too much in this evaluation

I think you need to keep Votto. Complemented with Choo in the 10th and Butler in the 12th, I think you're in good shape on hitting.

Strasburg is worth a 4th, and I think you're still getting value withe Morrow and Reed at 16/18 respectively. I think you'll be happy with your overall draft with this core and their cost.
